To all my “Sisters from other Misters”……..
I quickly made this card on the weekend from some leftover scraps of lace, paper and an old vintage image of an elegant lady. She’s a little less elegant now…looks like she’s been op-shopping or playing dress-ups.
She has bling on her hat and a label in case she gets lost or forgets who she is 🙂
A little bit of vintage lace is always classy…
I decided she need some earrings too, so she got some dainty pearls at the last minute (not shown in top picture) with a dot of Liquid Pearls. She’s ready to roll now. Off to a tea party or crazy hat convention. I foresee cupcakes and crochet in her future for some reason. Maybe a little white magic and fairy dust too (I stopped short of giving her wings).
Thanks for stopping in – Hope your day is wonderful 🙂
I decided to get some Christmas cards made today – I am seriously behind on getting them ready for Christmas and so I need to devote a bit of time to them this fortnight (even though I want to get stuck in and play with those lovely new beads!). I had a horrible back issue today – I’m in desperate need of a physio appointment but I just can’t afford it right now as my Health Insurance has run out for the year (roll on January!) – so I was being a bit pathetic and not accomplishing much. But I did get a handful of simple cards done and some is better than none! Here they are :
This “word” panel actually had “love” in the middle of it. But I decided to cover it with the matching red paper
so I could use the crocheted lace in the centre for a bit of texture.
Another crocheted flower (courtesy of my lovely cousin)…
This little guy needed a little something…
…so with the next one, I added a traditional snowman hat. Much better I think 🙂
So, not a bad day’s effort in between moaning and groaning about my back and doing laundry and making dinner etc (whoops – which is still on the stove…).
Hope your weekend was happy and you got lots of whatever you love to do, done!
Thanks for visiting! 🙂
